Regular professional dental cleanings and examinations are essential to maintaining good dental health. Professional cleanings, at least once every six months, help remove plaque and tarter which can lead to infection, decay, and tooth loss if not removed regularly. Using the latest technology in the industry, Plano, TX cosmetic dentists, Dr. Ron Bosher and Dr. Tim Nguyen, ensure their patients receive the best oral care possible by finding areas of decay before they are visible to the naked eye. Routine dental cleanings prevent small cavities from developing into larger problems that would need extensive dental work to repair. Dr. Bosher and Dr. Nguyen are proud to have the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detector in-house. Our dental practice uses only digital X-rays to uncover the earliest phases of decay.

"My husband and I have been a patient of Dr. Bosher's for 12+ years. I've recommended everyone I know to him. He, by far, is the most professional, knowledgeable, kindness dentist we have every worked with, and I can't imagine ever going to anyone else. He always conservative and will only suggest dental work when necessary. His staff is amazing and it's like going in and visiting family. It's the first dentist office that we've ever gone to that we don't dread going to. Our oldest child is finally old enough to start seeing him and we will now make the transition from pediatric dentistry to him - no doubt she will love him too. I'd highly recommend him. Can't imagine a better dentist in the metroplex!!!!!"- D.C. / Google / Mar 04, 2016

What to Expect
Routine dental cleanings begin with a full examination of the patient’s teeth to check for cavities, tooth decay or damage. During the dental cleaning, our experienced dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar build-up from the patient’s teeth, and will then use a power toothbrush to clean and polish the patient’s teeth. Patients are encouraged to have a professional teeth cleaning once every six months.
The price of a routine dental cleaning varies, depending on the health condition of the patient’s teeth. Most insurance companies cover the entire cost of a cleaning, which means patients won’t be required to pay for anything out of their own pocket. If patients do not have dental insurance, they can expect to pay between $100 and $200.

Dental Cleanings FAQs
What Causes Decay?
Tooth decay occurs when plaque and sticky sugar produce acid that destroys the tooth’s enamel. Patients can prevent tooth decay with routine brushing and flossing, and avoiding eating foods and drinks high in sugar.
Dentists recommend patients have their teeth professionally cleaned once every six months. Excess tartar and plaque buildup can lead to health issues, such as gum disease, tooth decay and sensitivity. In addition, an annual exam will include X-rays to ensure there is not any hidden problems that are not detectable by the naked eye, such as early decay, small chips, cracks, etc.
Yes, some patients may use fluoride treatments during a teeth cleaning. If used in small amounts, fluoride prevents tooth decay, and strengthens weak areas on the teeth.
